RE: Fremont #14 School Closure due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) - Updated
Dear Parents/Guardians/Community Members/Students/Staff:
Tonight the board of trustees met to discuss what was best for our community, students, and staff with the increase of positive COVID-19 cases in Fremont County. Fremont #14 board of trustees has closed school indefinitely. Fremont #14 had originally closed school through March 27, 2020, but with direction from the State of Wyoming and WDE, schools were to be closed until April 3, 2020.
With information that has been given by Governor Gordon, Wyoming Department of Education, Dr. Gee from Fremont County Public Health, Wind River Cares, and Indian Health Service. It has been determined that returning to school on April 6, 2020 is not in the best interest of students, staff and our community. Fremont #14 will continue to monitor the situation and keep in contact with the state of Wyoming, WDE, and local health officials to determine when the best time to return to school will be. We will keep you updated as best we can.
The Wyoming Department of Education has released rules regarding distance learning providing districts guidance on how to best proceed with distance learning plan. Fremont 14 will develop and adopt a distance learning plan that will be used during the time school will be closed, however long that will last. More information about school learning packets, lessons online, and student work will come out soon.
Fremont #14 will provide a “grab and go” meal for students during the school closure. Meal pick-ups will take place at Wyoming Indian High School from 11:00am -12:30pm. Grab and Grow drop off points:
On behalf of Fremont #14, we want to thank you for your patience during this time. It is a time on “unknowns” and we will do our best to get through this together. In the meantime Fremont #14 schools are encouraging ALL to practice the following:
Thank You, Fremont #14 Board of Trustees and Administration
The staff at Wyoming Indian Schools are doing their best during this school closure time in trying to meet the needs of our students. The following is a schedule for a sack lunch that our cooks and WIS staff will be getting out on a daily basis from 11:00am to 1:00pm. This will be a free sack lunch for all students.
At the same time, homework, books, devices, etc will be available for pick during this same time for all schools.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call your child's school.
Thank You for patience and understanding during this time.
